if it's possible or not. but i think we should require nert training. we're in a city that the first-responders, even if you had a gazillion firefighters, first of all, most of them don't live here unfortunately and secondly we're going to need all of us when it comes to a big earthquake. when you get this training they say 80% of the people will be needing to be helped. very minorly injureded and then we'll have the training to help them. so i think that would be a really awesome thing if we could all be nert trained and require it. >> mr. resignato, is this time card 3 or 4 for you? >> this is 3. >> from what it sounds like, Û: think i need to become a nert, because i'm a nerd already, but i could become a nert. i love the prevention questions. keep them coming. i'm passionate about prevention. there is a simple thing to make sure that when our earthquake hits we can do what is called "shelter in place." we can keep people in their homes. basically we have lot of multi-family homes with soft understories with a garage, but there is a lot of weight on top. what happened in the

years ago in the city. last night i found myself shepherding racoons and cats not only out of my yard but out of my house first. i consider that the quintessential san francisco animal experience. so, in terms of experience, i've spent the last two years navigating a large and steep learning curve sunshine law, the health codes, learning to build coalitions, getting to know supervisors. and i would ask you to reappoint me so that i can continue my work on behalf of all san francisco's animals. thank you. >> thank you. susanna, i did have a quick question. first of all, thank you for your service on the commission already. could you speak to one issue or a legislation that you took particular interest in over your term as a commissioner? something that you worked on that you prioritized during your term. >>> okay. yes, i think the first thing that comes to mind is the fate of the ferrel cat kohl i inin the west end of golden gate park. and i was asked by community leaders to come out and look at the site. and we talked with rec and park about maintaining good habitat for this establish

work on this. >> good afternoon, sponsors, i will be brief. first our audit that was released in january, it there were two issues that i think relate to the proposed ordinance. the first is that our audit found that san francisco is falling short of the city's regional assigned goals, particularly for low and moderate income housing. while the city is on pace to meet two-thirds of its overall housing goal, at the current riterate of projection it will only achieve 16% for low-income housing and 25% for moderate income housing by 2015. the second issue relates to written reports that have been presented to the planning commission, which we found do not sufficiently explain how residential projects contribute to housing element goals. the department staff reports contained standardized language when discussing the basis for recommending entitlement approval, including finding that thes project conforms with the project code and enumeration of the housing element and applicable area plans that it advances. it also at the request of the planning commission, the planning departmen
outside of their communities or out of san francisco. this is the first step of many that this board of supervisors can take to demonstrate that the city has learned lessons from the ills of redevelopment and has intentionally developed a plan to be more conscious of the families fact impacted by redevelopment type of activities. this legislation gives a family that is forced to move a choice in priority to return to the site where their homes once existed. it also begins to rebuild in addition to housing trust between residents and the developer teams charged with redeveloping the site. the high level concept of this legislation do the following: gives households the right to return provided that they have not been evicted. minimizes screening criteria in order to ensure that residents aren't somehow weed out and restricted from the new housing. income eligibility qualifications not be affected theriors city review of any relocation plans and entires [skphrao-eupbs/] with local beliefs. it also required a non-binding recommendation to be issued to the housing authority commission pr

activities together. a lot of wii systems, about 40, are being deployed around the city to different senior centers and residents facilities to encourage older adults to get more involved with physical activity using technology. we're going to spend the first 30 minutes or so demonstrating the wii. not only will we demonstrate how to use it, but we will doe demonstrate adaptive devices so that it can be an inclusive activity for all adults and children. my name is dr. chris thompson from the university of san francisco. go, dons. 1855. i have not been there that long. i am in the department of exercise and sports science. i think it is a good match for me to be demonstrating the wii, which is a good physical activity. i am joined on the stage by a student, not from usf, but from san francisco state. we actually talk to each other. this is mackenna. >> good morning. >> finally, i am joined by alicia from the independent living center in san francisco. it is great for all of you to be here today. people will be trickling in over the next half hour. we will give you a taste of what wii is like
. >> commissioner liu has an excused absence. the first item on the agenda are items appearing or not appearing on the agenda that are within the jurisdiction. >> good evening, i am larry bush, i write for city report. earlier this month i asked for the staff to provide a list of those people that have not filed their form 7. i have that list for you now. this is about 30 san francisco officials by the end of august had not filed form 700. some people are including vice chair of development authority as well as all three members of the bond oversight committee. which as you know is the committee that monitors several billion dollars in funding. when i asked what actions had been taken to provide fines or what have you for people that not filed. that are due on april 1. i was told in writing that due to a lack of resources, there were no fine letters going out this year, and none had gone out last year. i talked to the fcpc, and they said they had fined some san francisco officials themselves for failing to file. some of the same people who had not filed last year, still have not filed this year
these services to employees in the city. i don't know to what extent that -- >> thank you, president chu. >> i have one comment, first of all, i want to echo what supervisor compos said, i want to thank you, you have a big job and a number of reports coming from this past year that we'll be considering and i appreciate the work that you have done on that, from my perspective and i think this is probably no surprise, we heard a lot of testimony last year that echoes what you have laid out in your report, it was the fact that hra's seem to be on the rise, the fact that there did seem to be restaurant that is were abusing surcharges with regards to employees and consumers, that caused me to spend quite a bit of time after last year's vito to craft the legislation that as we all know just went to in effect this year, so from my perspective, i didn't hear necessarily any new data different pr the testimony that we heard last year, it really confirmed the problem that we heard about which is why we moved forward with the legislation at the end of last year and certainly if this data, if we hear data
as mass was starting this morning. daly city police officers were still here at the small parking lot at st. andrews church this afternoon collecting evidence. they first arrived on the scene at 9:00 a.m. getting several 911 calls. >> when the officers responded they say three female victims on the ground. >> reporter: police say a 6-year-old girl and two women in their mid-40s were hit by a minivan. investigators say one of the woman is the girl's mother. they were taken to san francisco general hospital where the young girl died. the reyes family came for the regularly scheduled mass and saw the three victims after the accident, including the young girl. >> i was happy to see her breathing, but i knew she was in shock. >> reporter: gennis reyes saw the three victims taken away by ambulance, but didn't realize that the 6-year-old girl had died until now? >> did she? oh, my god. the little girl died. oh, my god. >> reporter: the shock and sadness spread through the church, even though the victims' names have not been released, people in the close-knit community are expecting to kno
that we could bring forward to the voters in the city and county of san francisco which was passed and we know that that is not the final step that the first of many things that we are going to have to do to make sure that we have a balanced budget. the worst thing that we can do is to make sure that we need to make sure that pensions are going to be there for people when they retire and we need to do everything possible to make sure that we live up to the obligations that we promised people when they started working. >> mr. bryer. >> pension is something that is critically important for the state. and we have huge obligations in the pension funds that have been unfunded and right now we are assuming something like a 7 and a half percent on pension returns when the private sector the returns are, you know, anticipated around 4 percent. and so this is an area where we have to be honest about how can we insure that people who have worked and who have contributed are going to have pensions in the future? and so, we really have to, approach i got very excited about was what i redid in san fra

and planning for elders. first i want to thank four bringing up this issue and considering it today. we really think that the dashboard is an important step for meeting affordable housing goals in the city. we of course represent seniors and people with disabilities and housing is one of our biggest issues. i talk to people literally every single day struggling with affordable housing. i remember in april seeing how much market-rate housing is being built and some of the imbrance in the housing had a we're building and especially as that compares with the people that we know so desperately need housing in san francisco. it would be wonderful not to look at it end of the year or every other year, but as every project is considered to be able to say, wait a minute, maybe there is a problem here. as people have pointed out. of course it's not in a easy to say there is a problem and let's fix it, but to be continually aware of it and to always be on people's radar and say where else can we find resources? maybe we need to put this probing on hold a little bit while we look into this other projec
